Who Wrote 'this Poem?

I was emailed this poem. I asked the guy who sent it to me if he knew who wrote it and he did not. Does anyone kknow who wrote this???

TIME
When as a child I ate and slept,
Time crept.
When as a boy I played and talked,
Time walked.
But when I became a full grown man,
Time ran.
When older still I grew,
Time flew.
And soon I shall be passing on,
Time gone.

Yes, Leonard, I think you have found the right poet! I believe it was Henry Twells, after reading his poem "Time". Thank you!

Here is the entire poem:

When as a child I laughed and wept,
Time Crept

When as a youth I waxed more bold,
Time Strolled

When I became a full-grown man
Time Ran

When older still I daily grew,
Time Flew

Soon I shall find, in passing on,
Time Gone

o Christ, wilt thou have saved me then?

Amen.
